SC refuses urgent hearing on plea against film 'The Accidental Prime Minister'

SC refuses urgent hearing on plea against film 'The Accidental Prime Minister'”

Muzaffarpur: A court here on Tuesday ordered the lodging of an FIR against Bollywood actors Anupam Kher, Akshaye Khanna and 15 others associated with the upcoming movie The Accidental Prime Minister based on the tenure of former prime minister Manmohan Singh. Some Congress members were noted saying that they will not let the movie release in the country due to the facts while BJP praised the work of the entire Accidental Prime Minister's makers by saying that the movie narrates the tale of a family who ruled the country for 10 years.

The appeal against the January 7 order was filed by petitioner Pooja Mahajan in the top court on Wednesday, hours after a division bench of the high court had dismissed the PIL which had sought a ban on both - the film and its trailer - alleging it defamed the constitutional post of Prime Minister. The Accidental Prime Minister is based on the book of the same name by Sanjaya Baru, who served as then PM Manmohan Singh's media advisor between 2004 and 2008. Ojha has further complained that actors who have played the role of Congress President Rahul Gandhi, his mother Sonia Gandhi and his sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra have damaged their image.

The high court had disposed of the writ petition against the trailer but left it open for the petitioner to file a public interest litigation (PIL). Other releases like Viswasam and Petta are not going to affect this movie but Vicky Kaushal's Uri which is also becoming popular by its thrilling trailer can affect the box office collection of the movie.

Earlier, Anupam Kher had said that films like The Accidental Prime Minister should be sent to Oscars. The best part is that it shows the human side of Manmohan Singh though not to a great deal.
